Rapid childbirth: causes and prevention
Arise rapid birth due to violations of the contractile function of the uterine walls. Initially, they can be protracted, with a bad neck opening and challenging presentation. But then begins the rapid progress of the baby through the birth canal. The total time of delivery may be standard, but with a sharp reduction in bearing-down period. But for the joy of few reasons: they are not without complications. Most often it is the gaps, bleeding, and most importantly – danger to the child: it can get severe injury which can be life-threatening or cause disability. A generic activity is rhythmic uterine contractions lasting several seconds and repeated after a certain period of time. Ideally, contractions should be regular, with a gradual shortening of the distance between them and elongation.
Childbirth is in any case divided into three periods, which are clearly separated from the practical point of view. The first of them starts with regular contractions, at this time my cervix is ripening due to the reduction of the myometrium. This completes a full opening, allowing predlagay part of the fetus through the cervix. This period is the longest, which is justified as it contributes to the reduction of injuries of the birth canal and intense pressure on the child. The second stage is the expulsion of the fetus, it starts after full disclosure of the cervix and ends with birth of the child. During this time reduced the uterine wall, the baby moves in the birth canal, a mother must make an effort to help the baby to be born. This period lasts from 30 minutes to 2 hours. The third stage is the shortest, not more than half an hour. The separation of the placenta and birth, as well as a significant reduction of the uterus.
Rapid births are regulated by the activity of the nervous system and hormones. The last is preparing the birth canal. In order for the fetus could pass through, under the influence of oxytocin starts contractions. And the nervous system begins the formation of a special installation, aimed at concentrating the mother's body for the birth of the baby. If you violate this clear interaction and the development of pathologies. Quick delivery is a violation of the hyperdynamic contractile ability of the uterus, that is, it starts too much to decline. The main characteristics is the extremely active myometrium, increase intrauterine pressure, more than five contractions in ten minutes. In this situation, the most dangerous is the development of seizures, which can lead to uterine rupture. Rapid traumatic birth for baby and mom, as they are not yet ready.
Important value has revealing during pregnancy predisposing factors. If a woman is at risk, especially if she already had a rapid birth in a hospital is better to go before the anticipated deadline. If necessary the doctor may prescribe drugs that improve placental blood flow and therapy that relaxes the muscles of the uterus.
